Regulatory Status Legend
The L60 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD43 which is also known as Leukosialin (LSN) or Galactoglycoprotein (GALGP). CD43 is a ~95-135 kDa heavily O-sialylated type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is encoded by SPN (sialophorin) and belongs to the cell surface mucin family. The L60 antibody recognizes a sialic acid-dependent determinant on CD43. CD43 is highly expressed on T lymphocytes, thymocytes, monocytes, granulocytes, bone marrow stem cells, pre-B cells and activated B cells plasma cells but not on resting peripheral blood B cells, red blood cells, and non-hematopoietic cells. CD43 is enzymatically shed from leucocyte surfaces following activation by various stimuli. CD43 appears to be involved in mediating intercellular interactions that regulate leucocyte functions.

Preparation and Storage
Store undiluted at 4°C.
This preparation contains no preservatives, thus it should be handled under aseptic conditions.
The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
- Sodium azide is a reversible inhibitor of oxidative metabolism; therefore, antibody preparations containing this preservative agent must not be used in cell cultures nor injected into animals. Sodium azide may be removed by washing stained cells or plate-bound antibody or dialyzing soluble antibody in sodium azide-free buffer. Since endotoxin may also affect the results of functional studies, we recommend the NA/LE (No Azide/Low Endotoxin) antibody format, if available, for in vitro and in vivo use.
